Link Building 2012 – Dissecting the Process [infographic]

Posted by @ 5:52 pm

As I was trawling the web this week, I found this great infographic posted by Elan that beautifully explains the holy grail of SEO – Link Building.

While many argue that content is king, the reality is that effective link building is really the key to top rankings on Google.

The infographic highlights the many ways that website owners can build links to their website either through on-site link baiting or through ethical link acquisition techniques.

It really shows that there are a myriad of ways to gather links to your site. Effective SEO is all about the ongoing process of building a diverse link base.

So don’t limit yourself to just one or two particular types of link. Use the infographic to inspire your to broaden your sources. A healthy cross section of directories, forums/blogs/reviews, content, social, and baited links will see you rise up the ranks much faster.

With the Penguin update link building tactics have come under fire. When it comes to link building, don’t think about the search engines. Think about your target audience and where they spend their time online so that the link can generate traffic.
